Bvlgari Assioma Womens Watch AAW36D1WL by Elizabeth Lowry
Diamonds are forever. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Or as Mae West once said, “I never worry about diets. The only carrots that interest me are the number you get in a diamond.” It seems as if everyone from Elizabeth Taylor to Dolly Parton has had something to say about diamonds….and we’ve all heard a lot of hype about them, but when it comes to cliches, this Bulgari Assioma women’s watch certainly doesn’t fit the bill. With a sparkling line of diamonds framing a mother-of-pearl dial on the left and right, this timepiece is nothing if not distinctive looking. If you are not too dazzled by the glittering gems, you will see that the bezel on this watch is stamped with the Bulgari logo above and below the dial and includes only no numerals; simply small silver-gold indexes. This timepiece also features a white gold casing and an ardillon buckle. For those not in the know, an ardillon buckle is also referred to as a “thumbnail” buckle—although, when discussing a luxury watch, the French word tends to sound a bit more sophisticated. The truth is that an ardillon or thumbnail buckle is simply a basic buckle that curves in the direction of your wrist as you fasten your watch. An another interesting feature of this watch is the fact that the strap is made of what Bulgari calls “technological satin.” This is basically a synthetic material that looks just like satin but is a lot more durable.
Pros: In my view, the fact that this watch has a quartz movement is a huge plus, as quartz requires little to no maintenance. It is about as reliable as you can get.
Cons: The mother-of-pearl dial may mean that the time is hard to read in bright light, particularly since there is no mention of an anti-reflective treatment on the watch’s crystal. Further, this watch only has a minute and hour hand, meaning that if you like to count seconds, this watch is probably not for you. It is also unlikely that this watch is waterproof, so you will need to remember to remove it before bathing.
This watch seems to be a dress watch, and as such, its manufacturers probably does not expect it to be worn every day. Definitely keep this in mind before you decide whether or not you are prepared to spend the $17,800.
Written by: Stacy McCullough You need a watch that speaks to you. And a watch that speaks to others about you. When you wear it, people know you are a fashionista, a woman who knows quality and how to properly display it. One company that knows high-end pieces like this is Bvlgari. The Bvlgari Assioma D Women’s Watch AA31WGG is a lovely luxury piece that adds elegance to anyone.
The Assioma was designed to recreate the simple demure of the 1950’s. Bvgarli did this by forming the watch out of a beautiful 18k yellow gold. Both the case and band glimmer against any light because of the high quality gold. The watch dial is white with a sapphire crystal face over it. Sapphire is scratch resistant, so you can count on your AA31WGG model to keep in prime condition. The gold case back is screwed in for safety and the entire case is only 1.22 inches in diameter. This dainty size makes it look lovely on any frame type. The band has a seven-inch strap that can be adjusted by removing links to fit your wrist. And the hidden folding clasp creates an even more elegant piece because the eye never meets a spot on the watch it doesn’t like. Plus, the clasp will make sure it never falls off! The Assioma is made in Switzerland, so you can be assured the time will always be extremely accurate due to their high quality Quartz movement. The bezel is also made from 18k gold and for added comfort, the crown pushes in. While the Assioma quartz yellow gold watch is waterproof up to 99 feet, it is not suggested you wear it in water. At a retail price of $21,800, this is not a watch you want to accidentally ruin.

Bvlgari’s Assioma D line of watches is made to represent Diva, Donna or women, and diamonds. If you like this watch, but aren’t sure it is the right one for you be sure to check out some of their similar designs such as the AAP26BGG, AAP31GG and AA26WGDIG. But the AA31WGG is no exception to Bvlgari’s luxury. This watch is obviously not meant for everyone because of its high cost. But if you have the money and want a classic, simple accessory with function, the Assioma is definitely a good option for you.
